Her best effort — a 28-point
barrage in a 105-81 victory over
the Rice Owls Jan. 8 — was three
points better than the team’s
single-game high of last season,
when guard Kelley Sullivan
scored 25 points in a two-point
loss to San Francisco.
The Aggie Ladies, 8-9 on the
season and 1-2 in Southwest
Conference play, host SMU
Saturday afternoon at 5:15 be
fore the start of the Aggie men’s
game with the Mustangs.
Edgar says she didn’t get
overconfident when Rapp in
serted her into the starting five.
“I thought: ‘I’m here and this
is where I want to be, but I still
have a lot of work to do,’” she
said. “I still have to show them
that I can handle this position.
Coach Rapp was saying that I
had to be ready when the ball
was tipped, and I was getting my
mind set on that.”
Edgar, who averaged 25
points during her junior season
at Bryan Adams, said her ability
to play well for the Aggie Ladies
has boosted her confidence.
“It’s not like a dream come
true,” she said, “but it’s where I
want to be. I felt like I could do it
— there was no doubt in my
mind about it. In high school, it
Jenni Edgar leading Aggie
Ladies at 13 points a game
just seemed so easy, and that’s
what I’m used to.
“But when I think about it, I
guess I am surprised to be lead
ing the team in scoring. I’m sur
prised, because usually people
who lead college teams are the
tall posts, the tall forwards or the
black players.
“Other people are surprised,”
Edgar said. “When they hear
who the leading scorer is and
they see me walking out on the
floor, they say, ‘Her?’ I love it.”
During high school basket
ball, Edgar said, her role as a
leader wasn’t clearly defined.
“I think it was expected of me
to be the leader,” she said. "But I
wouldn’t say I was the leader.
We didn’t have a very close-knit
team, and the people on my high
school team didn’t really like me
very much. They thought every
thing 1 got was handed to me on
a silver platter and that I didn’t
deserve anything.
“And that really made me
work even harder to prove to
them that they were wrong.”
With high school two years
behind, Edgar said she’s pleased
with this year’s turn of events.
“I feel like it’s worked out just
perfect,” she said. “I got experi
ence last year and I'm really get
ting the feel of it now. But if I
had gone to a bigger-name
school, I would have been sitting
on the bench during my fresh
man and sophomore year and
maybe starting to play myjunior
While the Aggie Ladies have
lost three straight road games to
Texas Tech, Baylor anci Arkan
sas, Edgar has connected on
only six of 19 shots in the last two
games. Both she and her team
mates still have confidence.

It’s been cold, it’s been rainy
and it’s been both. That’s not the
kind of weather track coaches
want to see before their teams
hit the road to their first meet of
the season. It’s not good for
workouts and it slows prepara
And in no way does it match
the climate that Texas A&M’s in
door track teams will be playing
in this month. The Aggies don’t
practice under a roof.
But ready or not, both teams
are off to Oklahoma City today
for the Sooner Relays this
weekend. The indoor meet will
mark the beginning of the 1983
season for the Aggies and Aggie
Ladies and will provide the
coaches of both teams with a
preview of things to come.
Men’s coach Charlie Thomas
said he’ll take more team mem
bers to Oklahoma than the max
imum of 24 allowed in the
Southwest Conference Indoor
meet. Consequently, one of his
priorities will be to whittle his
team down to 24 top contenders.
Four of those 24 will likely be
high jumpers. Thomas has high
hopes for success in that event
this season, since Olympic quali
fier Jimmy Howard will be back
for his final season. Howard’s
best jump last spring was 7-feet-
5-inches. Junior Don Jones, who
doubles as a wide receiver on the
Aggie football team, junior
Chuck Perry and sophomore
Ethan Glass have turned in good
marks in the past and are ex
pected to be top performers in
the high jump.
But Thomas’ big concern
now is Rod Richardson, the
Aggies’ top performer and the
current NCAA record-holder in
the 60-yard dash. Richardson is
recovering from an ankle injury
